What makes us different
Building relationships with successful management teams is at the core of everything we do. We combine industry knowledge and real world experience with our straightforward approach to give every one of our investments the best chance to succeed.
Deep sector expertise
We invest heavily in researching our chosen sectors, building contacts and understanding the key market trends. This enables us to spot investment opportunities, make informed decisions and provide help developing strategies to create value. Our investment team is supported by experienced executives on our sector advisory board.
Backed by entrepreneurs
Our funding comes from entrepreneurs who have themselves built successful businesses. This gives us an appreciation of the challenges faced by management teams as they develop their businesses and the flexibility that is not available from institutional funds.
Decision makers that deliver on our promises
As a small team with short lines of communication you are dealing with decision makers who do not need to refer back to a distant investment committee.
Going the extra mile to support management
We keep close to our investments, supporting management where we can genuinely help. We see ourselves as stewards of the businesses we back, preparing them to thrive after our period of ownership.
The strength of our relationships
Every manager we have backed is a custodian of our track record so we take our relationship with management very seriously. The people that we have worked with previously are our best reference and we are very happy to introduce prospective management teams to learn first hand what it is like to work with us.
